About Saint Thomas'
The Norman church at Stanhope known as the Church of St Thomas the Apostle standing immediately above the Market Square is over 800 years old with evidence of an earlier Anglo-Saxon building. The 2* listed Church has a fascinating history partly due to the distinguished and colourful rectors who have been attracted to enjoy the benefits attached. Good fortune has preserved the contents including a Roman altar, ancient fonts, beautiful woodwork and superb medieval glass.
The Churchyard has listed tombstones and the world famous 250,000,000-year-old Fossil tree. Contact us
